From the people who revolutionized genocide, Germany gets eugenic again: The universities of Regensburg and Rostock in Germany are trying to turn beauty into a quantifiable thing. Perhaps beauty check is harmless, or maybe, with old fashioned German ingenuity behind it, beauty check is dangerous pseudoscience and a precursor to a Final Solution for the unattractive. The Germans may have once exterminated 'undesirables' (e.g., the ugly, the unpopular, etc.), but this is basically just a cool web thingy that happens to be being made by Germans ;-). To really test their theories, they should submit a 'perfect' image to one of the hot or not websites.
